Rich, dark, and roasty with a hint of smoky spice hinting at chipotle peppers. Pretty awesome.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 17, 2011
THOUGHTS: Actually quite spicy. Way more heat than I was expecting, but it never reached an unpleasant level. But I love hot stuff and this might be too much for some. It would go nice with some sausages. Rather complex. Would be great even without the peppers, but this was incredible and different. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was basically opaque black in the glass with a large, light brown head that mostly diminished, but kept a decent sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, and chocolate milk; maple syrup; and hints of pepper and spice (but that might be my imagination.). The initial flavor was spicy, light to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, slightly bitter and slightly sour; while the finish was moderately sweet, lightly bitter, spicy, and lightly sour with a long duration, especially on the spices. There was chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, chocolate syrup, spicy peppers, dark chocolate, cocoa, slight burnt malt, a little dark fruit, sausage spices, caramel and sour coffee. The medium to full body was leaning toward full. It was silky and then a bit dry with soft yet tingly carbonation that intensified when the spice started to effect the tongue. It also had a dry and spicy finish.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 black pour with a huge head. pepper, dark chocolate and black coffee dominate the nose. Fair bit of pepper and black coffee up front, roasted malt, dark chocolate in the background. heavier body. Much preferred to the barrel aged version and the pepper flavor is surprisingly restrained (considering the brewer).

Black with great brown head. Aroma is molasses, leather, espresso, chilli and some cherry. Rich palate. Aftertaste is chocolate, hot chilli, coffee and leather. Overall: impressive. Tastes like its 10%.

Pour thanks to daknole! Deep brown/black with an intense beige head. Mikkeller makes such attractive beers. Aroma is heavy with dark chocolate, espresso, and a nice underlying spice. Flavor shows the same with additional roast malt, light smoke, and the chipotle spice definately makes itself known. Overall body is full, viscous, and finishes with a dry bitterness and spicy heat. Mmmm.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a two finger, fine bubbled dark khaki head in this glass - it has a nice feeling from the appearance perspective. The nose is caramel and cocoa bean, with some grass and light spicing present. The flavor profile has a medium mouthfeel initial, modest sweetness. It has a robust center, moreso than expected for something in the 6.66% range, as its called. It finishes with mild bitterness, chocolate bean and roast, moving to more grass and a touch of red chili pepper, but quite modest as far as heat is concerned. Anyway - a nice porter

TorbenJensen (1478) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2015
Rough large foam. Clear coffee aroma. Good taste of coffee with light chilli touch. Lovely fullness, very filling and delicate. From Mikkeller however, I had hoped for a little more clear chili, but its not so.

StilleStorm (1466) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2014
DAA; Bottle 330 ml. Pours brown to black with a large, frothy to creamy, lacing, lasting tan head. Nose is heavy roasted, smoked malt and coffee, chocolate, vanilla, tobacco and dark, spice fruit. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a sweet lasting, spice bite, warming finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily to creamy, carbonation is flat to soft. Chilli and beer harmony.

deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 26, 2012
A-opaque cola brown with thin cocoa brown head. Minimal lacing. A-coffee and toasted malts overwhelm the nose. Some pepper, salt, smoke and chalk carry to the end. M-mild carbs with slightly watery feel for a porter. T-espresso, smoke, chalk and grains start the taste. Lingering, potent pepper takes over and has a motivated spicy finish. Pepper pretty much takes over the taste after initial contact, with earthy, vegetable notes clawing from underneath. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
